Hi all,

Difference between ASP and ASP.NET

ASP.NET:
  1. ASP.Net web forms have a code behind file which contains all event handling code.
  2. ASP.Net web forms inherit the class written in code behind.
  3. ASP.Net web forms use full fledged programming language
  4. ASP.Net web applications are configurable (web.config)
  5. ASP.Net webforms can use custom controls through the @ register directive
  6. ASP.Net web forms have ADO.Net which supports XML integration and integration of data from two or more data sources


ASP:
  1. ASP does not have such facility to separate programming logic from design.
  2. ASP does not have the concept of inheritance.
  3. ASP pages use scripting language.
  4. ASP applications are not.
  5. It is not available with ASP.
  6. while ASP has ADO which is a simple COM object with limited facilities.
